While opening the three-day annual deputy commissioners (DCs) Conference-2023 at the Shapla Hall of her office in capital Dhaka, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina asked them to take only necessary projects alongside implementing 25 directives including putting emphasis on increasing food production and taking measures for saving electricity and energy. In the 25-point directive, Sheikh Hasina asked the deputy commissioners to check militancy, terrorism and drugs, maintain law and order by curbing social crimes.
The deputy commissioners must work with priority in implementing the prime minister’s 25 directives in order to make a developed, prosperous and Smart Bangladesh by 2041. Keeping in mind the global economic recession caused by Covid-19 pandemic and Russia-Ukraine war, the deputy commissioners should undertake the projects which are necessary at this moment. Besides, they (deputy commissioners) will have to cut unnecessary expenses while implementing the projects.
The deputy commissioners should
work for the country and its people
with sincerity and integrity
The economic crisis is persisting globally. Bangladesh is also facing the crisis though the country is not in such a condition that the government has to scrap the project.
The government has not attached importance on purchasing electronic voting machine right now rather its priority is to ensure food security, health services and welfare of the people alongside increasing food production.
The deputy commissioners will have to work in a planned way in their respective districts as no nation can develop without a specific and well-thought-out plan. Besides, they should give topmost importance to increasing agricultural production as Bangladesh needs to reduce dependency on imported food items.
The deputy commissioners should work for the country and its people with sincerity and integrity. DCs should consider their jobs as ‘service to people’. We hope the deputy commissioners will execute the prime minister’s directive and work for the welfare of general people.
